Jr. Jag Families,
I hope that you and your family are doing well. Again, I want to thank you for continuing to support our school during the COVID 19 pandemic. We miss our scholars and parents and look forward to the day that we can resume school in our building.
Enrollment - Kindergarten registration for the 2020-21 school year is underway as is new student enrollment. Registration is online at fcschools.net. Please contact Kim Johnson, our data manager, if you need assistance or have questions. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remote Learning - Remote learning will continue this week and teachers will be available for instruction and support. Remote learning will end on June 3 and students can begin their summer break. Learning packets and library books can be dropped off at school on June 4th and 5th. We will send out a reminder next week.
Please don’t forget to fill out this survey from the district to give feedback about Remote Learning.
Chromebook Collection - 4th and 5th-grade Chromebooks will be collected on June 5 between 1 and 6 pm.
Personal Items - If your child still has personal items at school, your teacher will contact you and we will let you know the process for picking them up between June 4 and June 12.
End of Year Feedback Document - Your child’s teacher will also be sharing an end of year document with you in the coming weeks to give you feedback on his or her performance during the course of this school year. This document will take the place of the fourth quarter and final report card. It will be emailed in PDF format to you after June 10.
Yearbooks - We have checked in with Lifetouch and yearbook orders are still on hold due to production being shut down for COVID 19. We anticipate that yearbook orders will be here in the fall and we will make sure that everyone who ordered one will receive their copy.
5th Grade Celebration - All of us at Youngsville Elementary are very proud of our scholars and their accomplishments. We will honor our 5th graders on Tuesday, June 9 with a drive through promotion celebration. The event has two times 10-12 pm and 4-6 pm. All participants will be asked to remain in their cars and we will practice safety protocols.
As always, please reach out to us if you have questions or if we can help you in any way.
New learning packets can be picked up at school on Friday, May 15 from 11 am to 3 pm. This will be the last remote learning packet and it will cover the period beginning on May 18 and ending on June 4. Packets will also be available online starting on Monday, May 18 by accessing our school webpage, clicking on the academics tab and locating your teacher’s canvas page.
If you need to drop off work, we will also be prepared to receive that work on Friday. This is optional as teachers continue to give feedback on work online.
At this time, you can also drop off any library books you have at home! Someone will collect them from your vehicle. Mrs. Pope will be scanning those back into the system after they sit for two weeks.
Please follow the traffic pattern when you arrive at school for pick up. Stations will be set up and a staff member will deliver the packet to your vehicle.
Thank you again for continuing to support our teachers with remote learning. We are committed to making sure our students stay engaged and continue to learn.
Congratulations to Isabella Corsale who won first place for Youngsville Elementary (4th grade) in the 2019 poster Contest for The Franklin Soil and Water Conservation District.

YES Implements Zones of RegulationOne of our school improvement goals this year is to empower our faculty and staff to recognize student's emotional and social well-being as part of building strong educator-student relationships. We seek to help students with self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationships, and responsible decision-making. This also includes providing faculty and staff with specific tools to help them support our students. One key strategy for us this year is called Zones of Regulation which helps students identify their emotional state and then provide coping skills to help them self-regulate.If you were not able to attend the parent night, here is the presentation:
YES celebrated National School Counselor Week February 3-7. Students and staff recognized Ms. Cigna for all of her great work at our school.
Cold and flu season is upon us. Franklin County Schools is currently experiencing a high number of absences due to illness. FCS would, therefore, like to remind teachers, staff, students and parents and guardians of the important prevention measures that help keep everyone healthy. Good handwashing is one of the most effective cold and flu prevention measures. Covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze also helps prevent the spread of germs. Staying at home when sick helps to minimize the spread of illness. Students should be free of fever, vomiting or diarrhea for at least 24 hours, without the use of medication, before returning to school. Please feel free to contact the nurse at your child's school with any questions.
